tkbslc: This doesn't seem like an article that should be on this site.

Why shouldn't it be here? Because it has nothing to do with photography. A man who happens to be a photographer is in trouble for some alleged bad behavior. It offers nothing about photography or even his photography.

Can't you just use the hotkeys and arrow buttons on the keyboard just as quickly?

scoobysnapstories: why not yes, lets be lazier than gamers. make every editing software look like a joke.

How are gamers any lazier than photographers who spend all day on forums and editing photos?

Marty4650: PS3 or PS4...... I never knew PhotoShop 3 or PhotoShop 4 had handheld controllers!

I learn something new every day!

PS = PlayStation = Sony Video game system. They are video game controllers.

You'd be surprised how awful the experience is using even 7-8 year old computers on "basic" apps. Part of the problem is that those basic apps are a lot more active than they used to be. You can max out the CPU on a fairly modern dual core just loading certain webpages.

20 years ago, the fastest processor was the just released Pentium II 300 Mhz. You really want a 20 year old computer?

As far as I can tell, photography is not prohibited at the park, just at the concert that happens to be taking place in the park. A concert, even if free, is not necessarily a public space. I'm sure they will have fences and guards around the stage, meaning your right to move about the park will also be infringed. Perhaps no outside beverages will be allowed either, etc.

Stephen McDonald: Why are photographers allowed to charge money and enforce copyright restrictions, on images taken in public places?

If you copied my unique bookcase design, it wouldn't be yours, would it? What about photographic my unique likeness or unique architecture or landscaping?

OlyPent: Who is really paying for the cost to host these "free" concerts? Sanitation, road control, crowd control, etc? The tax-payer, the ones with the cameras.

And also the tax payers that want to enjoy a camera free show.

Atlanta168: "Canon 5D IV" should be removed from the table in section "Compared" because of its price tag. Then we will see that a 2014 Nikon model is better than a 2017 Canon model.

D750 launched at $2299. Yes that's more expensive than the 6D II, but certainly in the same ballpark.

mrgooch2008: In the 1970's IBM ran into the same problem with thinking they were so big that they didn't have to worry about competition.

IBM still makes a load of money, though!

This would have been an amazing camera as the original 6D in 2012. Just feels like microwaved leftovers at this point, though.

mick232: In my company, the marketing department runs ad campaigns. The actual product is defined by product managers who are part of engineering.

I suppose the engineers could do market research and accounting and payroll, too. But it's more efficient to let the right department handle that, don't you think?

I never mentioned Canon.

That's a recipe for failure. Designing products in a vacuum and then hoping they resonate with the customer base is a total gamble.

utphoto: Most of the negative comments seem to come from individuals who don't have a need to produce very large prints from single image files and fail to realize there is a market for images of a quality that can't be matched by FF DSLRs, regardless of their cost.

Boys' High school record for 100m in the US is 10 seconds flat. 14-15 seconds is too slow to make the JV girls track team.

19 seconds?! Your average 70 year old woman could probably do a 19 second 100m! :)

There's actually barely a second difference between Olympics and regular old high school athletes when it comes to the 100m.

While this is true, I also think some honesty about the quality difference is in order. The sensor size advantage for GFX over FF is roughly the same as it is for 4/3 and APS-C. And yes, you could say that APS-C has a quality that 4/3 just can't match. But it's definitely not a night and day difference, and it is only measured at the extremes.

Hey, we don't need scribes or type-setters anymore.
